The Camargue is famous for its beautiful white horses with its wild untamed lakes and lagoons situated along the French coastline. On this photographic trip, we will be focusing on capturing these powerful and iconic horses running through the warm waters of the Mediterranean and through marshland. We will also spend time capturing intimate portraits at close quarters.

Day 1: We look to arrive in Marseille after our international flights in the afternoon and transfer together to our accommodation. After we have settled in we have an evening briefing and discuss the logistics and itinerary for the next few days before having our evening meal.
Day 2: We will be making early starts on this trip and using the light to our advantage. Our first shoot will be based at a nearby lagoon photographing a group of 15 horses running through the water. We will return to our accommodation for a late breakfast and a chance to rest and download our images before lunch. After your break and meal, you will have some time to review your images from the morning session and Tom will be on hand if required to help with any critique or processing advice as needed. At around 5 pm we will be back out for our second shoot of the day (again using the light to our advantage) to have a session with newborn foals and their mothers. We will then return to our accommodation for an evening meal.
Day 3: This day will follow a similar pattern to the previous with an early start. We will have a dawn shoot on a Mediterranean beach with 3 stallions before making our way back to the accommodation. Our evening shoot we will return to the lagoon to perfect the running through the water images whilst including some time for portraits as well.
Day 4: On our final morning we will head to a nearby marshland to photograph a group of horses running through deeper water. This location will give you a chance to expand your portfolio with iconic images of the wild horses in action. We will then head back to our hotel for breakfast before taking our transfers back to Marseille.
